Ben Smith

Ben certainly embarked into his training career with gusto having obtained ample experience.

Ben served his traineeship by holding senior positions with successful trainers including Peter Snowden, John Thompson and Greg Eurell.

This experience was invaluable and made Ben well qualified and ready to make an impact in his own right.

It wouldn’t take long for the decision to be vindicated. Ben would saddle up Top Crown to win the Ullmurra Cup at his very first race start as a trainer.

Other achievements would quickly follow. His first runner in Saturday metropolitan racing was placed and in the middle of those achievements, Ben trained his first raceday double at Scone.

Noticeable successes have followed and now Ben has a resume boasting 2 Gr1 winners in the 2017/18 season:

IN HER TIME - (The Galaxy Gr1, Premiere Stakes Gr2, Millie Fox Stakes Gr2, Sydney Stakes LR)

EL DORADO DREAMING - (ATC Sires Produce Stakes Gr1)

An extremely dedicated young trainer, Ben works on the philosophy of providing a smaller, boutique style establishment in order to obtain the best results from his stable for both horse and owner.

With his attention to detail second-to-none, combined with an alternate training regime incorporating both track and beach work, it has laid the foundation for Ben’s rapid rise.

Ben Smith Racing is progressive and expanding stable that has been prominent in the winners stall over the past few years.

To enhance his training service, Ben has an interactive website offering an excellent communication portal.

In 2018, Ben Smith Racing and Dynamic Syndications joined forces.
